I have eaten at multiple locations of Country's Barbecue and all have been good. I really enjoy the downtown location which is inside of an old greyhound bus station from the 1940's. Barbecue is good, Brunswick stew is excellent along with their other sides. I like it because it is like a normal restaurant. Unfortunately, I have been to several... More

Great place for family. The food is good with many dishes besides BBQ. Check out the Mercury Drive location Friday and Saturday after 6:30pm for great live Bluegrass.

Country BBQ is amazing. We showed up on a Friday evening with a party of 9. The parking lot was full, smoke pouring out the hood. We knew we made a great choice. We only waited about 15 min. For a party of 9 on a Friday night I find that to be amazing. Once seated the atmosphere was amazing.... More

The restaurant was in a small strip mall, with the smoker for the cooking outside. The décor was like being in an old barn, with different pictures from the past which gave it a country feel. The service was ok, once drinks were served, order was taken, food came, the waitress never came to check how things were or to... More

Fries are fresh cut and delicious. The BBQ is excellent and flavorful especially if you get the ends. A yummy meal with great sweet tea. Busy and fitting log cabin type atmosphere. Smell the smoke! Warning - during peak times there will be a line sometimes out the door. Prepare to wait - it's worth it!

When visiting the heart land of Georgia what could be better than good (really good) barbecue, accompanied by all the southern side dishes (killer cole slaw) and live blue grass music. It was so good on Saturday night that we went back for Sunday lunch. There we sat next to a table of at least three generations all dressed in... More

I eat here everytime I go through Columbus. It is equal to my favorite BBQ anywhere. The chopped pork is always fresh, hot and great tasting. The size portions are always on the large side. I love the fresh veggies that are on the menu, but the BBQ slaw and onions are my go to sides. The desserts (if you... More

While visiting my oldest daughter, husband and two children, we were treated to a superb meal. The crowd was large and we were required to wait outside but the food and atmosphere was worth the wait. We all had something different because we wanted a little taste of everything, and everything we tasted was excellent. Even though it was very... More

Country's is super popular with locals. We saw several families walking out with bags of leftovers. One lady said to us, "Whew! I am sooooo full!" We loved the ribs, chicken, and chopped BBQ pork. Good sauces and great sides. Very friendly staff, nice country atmosphere, and clean restrooms. Cornbread was wonderful. Prices as expected. Only concern was that our... More
